Pan Mee @ Restoran Madam Chiam Curry Noodle House, Taman Connaught, Cheras

Recently, we're addicted to this..

Pan Mee!

Sometimes, we can eat it 2-3 times in a week. One of the pan mee places we've been frequenting a lot lately is Madam Chiam Curry Noodle House, mainly for convenience. It's also a case of the more we eat here, the more we like the noodles.

Somedays after Baby C's class is over, we will take her to Madam Chiam's where we, the adults will have our usual order of chilli pan mee with egg (a big bowl of course!) and Baby C will enjoy the dumpling / wantan / fishball.

To be honest, the first few times we ate here, I thought the noodles were a bit too soft. But lately I find myself liking it - either the noodles are much firmer now or I actually like the texture soft as it is. Some of our friends who we took here actually commented the noodles texture was very good too. So I guess, in the end, it boils down to personal preference as to which is your favourite pan mee place. A plus point is that every bowl of pan mee comes with a bowl of spinach & ikan bilis soup.

You gotta squeeze the lime into your pan mee... the tanginess of the lime works very well with the pan mee!

Of course, you can order the chilli pan mee without the egg... but it's not as good. The egg really works in pan mee! Trust me.

The chilli is not too spicy, we can usually take the full amount offered with each bowl without breaking a sweat

Mix it well before enjoying!

We've also tried the traditional pan mee (soup version) which is decent, but chilli pan mee rocks!

Dumplings here are pretty good. Baby C likes them very much.

At the start, we've always wondered why this place was called Madam Chiam Curry Noodle House. Until one day, we watched Axian on Astro and this restaurant was featured on the show -- we found out that the owner was actually famous for her curry noodles and only later on did she add on pan mee to her menu. I still haven't tried a full bowl of this yet, but I tried some of the soup from my friend's bowl of curry laksa pan mee the other day and it was really good! I am so tempted to order this rather than my chilli pan mee next time.

I think it's usually served with cockles, but since my friend doesnt like cockles, they replaced it with 2 fishballs. There is also a piece of chicken, half a boiled egg, vege and tofu pok.

The sour plum lime juice here is good too.

Baby C's reward for being a good girl ;)

Have a good weekend!

Verdict: The pan mee here is good for those who likes their noodles with a softer texture. Dumplings and curry laksa are highly recommended too.

  1. eh, i thought no photos allowed here???
    this is always me and friends college all-tme lunch place. love the pan mee a lot!

    1. Use iPhone to take the pics LOL. I hope they dont ban me if they see the blog. *eeeks*

  2. I prefer the sky pic over your food pic :)

  3. lime for panmee? I never try this before & the panmee shop I went didn't give any too >.<

    1. Other pan mee shops I go to, also never give lime.

  4. "not too spicy" are the magic words for me! i love the magical combination of pan mee with egg too, but i usually add minimal chili. the curry laksa sounds tempting too, since i'm a cockle-lover :D p.s. great sunset photo!!!

    1. I think you'd be able to handle the full lot of chilli.. it's really not that spicy but adds a different dimension to the overall taste.

      btw it's a sunrise photo.

  5. Lime with pan mee sounds like an interesting concoction! Having some major craving for pan mee after reading your post.. and those erasers at the end are adorable! Reminds me of the good ol' days of eraser and sticker collections :D -Wendy

    1. I never used to add the lime, but recently I did and it tasted much better.

  6. Madam Chiam restaurant, I think the lady boss is very rude. Anyway the food is small portion, not delicious, bad attitude boss, totally ban this place!
